Prepress studios, today, have to perform quality controls to ensure job accuracy, especially for pharmaceutical products. To streamline inspection processes, EyeC and Hybrid Software have launched the EyeC Driver, a new application that integrates EyeC’s PDF proofing technology — the EyeC Proofiler Graphic — into Hybrid Software’s cloudflow.

With the use of EyeC Driver, prepress studios can reduce the time, effort and money spent on quality controls. The integration triggers inspection procedures within the cloudflow automatically, retrieving job data, files and inspection parameters from the workflow system. Prepress files are inspected and released automatically if they match the approved artwork. Prepress operators only have to intervene when deviations are detected. A task appears in their workspace that opens the EyeC Proofiler Graphic for an easy review of discrepancies.

The EyeC software verifies the entire content of prepress files against the approved artwork. Text, graphics, Braille, 1D and 2D codes are checked in a single inspection cycle. Users can create as many inspection procedures as needed to compare, for instance, prepress files against customer files, one-up against step-and-repeat files or different versions of a file. They follow consistent control procedures without manual intervention.

We are glad to integrate our proofing technology into cloudflow to combine top inspection capabilities with modern workflow processes,” said Dr Ansgar Kaupp, chief executive officer of EyeC GmbH. Christopher Graf, chief marketing officer of Hybrid Software added, “At Hybrid Software, the focus is always on automation and efficiency. Therefore, we are pleased to have developed with EyeC an application that streamlines quality controls and boosts security.”

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
